iSprowt is Bringing Science to Virtual Classrooms
Schools Across the Country Will Have Access to Science Experiments
We’re excited to announce that we are working with schools and PTAs across the country to bring live, iSprowt virtual science assemblies to over 5,000 elementary students. Each student receives a kit that includes 2 hands-on, extremely fun, STEM experiments and a 16-page booklet filled with activities.
Benefits of Virtual Science Assemblies
One of the great things about our Virtual Science Assemblies is that there is no cost to families. iSprowt subsidizes the cost of these assemblies to make them highly affordable to all schools (the cost is just $2 per student!). The PTA buys the kits for students and distributes them.
Another benefit to these assemblies is the way they engage the students. We strongly believe the best way for children to learn is by doing. Our Virtual Science Assemblies bring science to life in your home with easy, mess-free experiments that are highly visual and engaging.
Lastly, there’s no issue with privacy, or missing out if you can’t attend the live assembly. iSprowt uses your school or PTA’s virtual classroom technology such as Zoom, Teams, WebEx, etc. This ensures the student’s privacy is protected. Schools are encouraged to record and redistribute the virtual assembly so that any student who cannot join live, can still fully participate.
Examples of the Hands-On Experiments
In our Wacky Weather Assembly, students will be laughing and learning as they build, create, and observe.
- Experiment #1: Tornado-in-a-bottle: Students will whirl and twirl to create their own mini tornado in a bottle. They will be mesmerized as the water picks up debris in its powerful spiraling spin. Here’s an example of the tornado-in-a-bottle experiment.
- Experiment #2: Chemistry and engineering experiment: “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” Students get a packet of safe, highly absorbent powder. They add 1 cup of water and the powder expands over 700%. Students can now build with the powder to create shapes such as a snowman, igloo, animal, dinosaur, letters, etc. Over the next 7 days, the water slowly evaporates from the powder and the shape changes. This allows the students to continue learning while they observe as evaporation slowly changes their original design.
- 16-page Educational Activity Booklet: All of the directions, science, and fun activities such as a short story, word search, maze, Find-It picture, and Silly Story (similar to a Mad Libs) to keep the students engaged, laughing, and learning.
Want a virtual assembly at your school? Contact us and we’ll send you info to pass on to your PTA and principal! Let’s work together to inspire kids and keep them excited about learning. Thank you!
